[Annelida] Annelids in OAIster

Hi annelida folk,

I wanted to share with you a resource indexing academic digital archives 
I encountered today.

OAIster ... find the pearls.   http://oaister.umdl.umich.edu/o/oaister/

This is a search engine to eprints and academically-oriented digital 
resources. Search results here will also probably be found in Google, 
but here they are nicely formatted with abstracts, and free of the dross 
  to be waded through in Google.

Early in the year the American Museum of Natural History made its 
publications freely available online, including early papers. 

OAIster is a nice interface to material available there. Such as Kirk 
Fitzhugh's 1989 monograph (as an image-scan pdf):

A systematic revision of the Sabellidae-Caobangiidae-Sabellongidae 
complex (Annelida, Polychaeta). Bulletin of the AMNH ; no. 192

Also OAIster links to Brazilian papers in SciELO (Scientific Electronic 
Library Online), to datasets in PANGAEA (www.pangaea.de/Info/), and much 
else. Some restricted access publications may be encountered.
